Schwanen Garten was started by two Korean scientists, Sung Hyun and Dr. Suan, who met while they were both exchange students in St. Petersburg over 25 years ago. The couple married, but shortly after the wedding, Suan’s mother tragically passed away from cancer, spurring the couple to years of intensive research in alternative and preventive medicine. The research particularly focused on the body’s immune system and the relation to antioxidation, which is the termination of chemical processes, which can otherwise lead to the formation of free radicals and damage to the cell. During their research, Sung Hyun and Dr. Suan discovered the critical role that antioxidants play in bolstering the immune system.
Sung Hyun and Dr. Suan’s research made the greatests progress after the couple returned to Seoul. The two scientists continued working on the thesis that a strong immune system and lots of antioxidants are the key to health and well-being. Furthermore, the couple realized the importance of antioxidants in skin care and after several years and countless scientific experiments in their own laboratory, Sung Hyun and Dr. Suan decided to launch their own line of skin care products, Schwanen Garten, developed in Seoul, and based on antioxidants derived from natural ingredients.
